millennials standing - torsos

Kerby Anderson George Barna has been doing an extensive inventory of the worldviews of Americans through the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University. He was on my radio program last week to talk about two of his most recent surveys dealing with truth and morality. Past generations of Americans viewed God as the basis for truth. Not only has that changed for the general population, it has also changed significantly within the church. He found that there were certain…

Thankful for freedoms - cornucopia

Kerby Anderson Each year, we take time from our busy lives to celebrate a day of Thanksgiving. Though many holidays have become secular celebrations, this holiday still retains much of its historic religious overtones. A day of Thanksgiving was set aside by the Pilgrims who founded Plymouth Colony. Life was hard in the New World.  Half of the Pilgrims died in the first terrible winter. After the first harvest was completed, Governor William Bradford proclaimed a day of Thanksgiving and…

Armed US Soldiers on Capitol steps

Kerby Anderson Yesterday I talked about a commentary by Glen Greenwald criticizing the call for a domestic war on terror. One of his concerns is the attempt to justify new domestic police powers because speech can “incite violence.” Not only is that used to justify going after our fellow Americans, it also was the basis for the impeachment article against Trump. Citing Rudy Giuliani in what constitutes incitement wouldn’t be helpful since he has been the former president’s lawyer. It…

Razor-wire fencing around the Capitol

Kerby Anderson We are hearing more and more talk of instituting a domestic war on terror. Glen Greenwald says he has seen all of this before. Some calling for new domestic police powers against “terrorists” admit they are using a model from the first war on terror nearly two decades ago. Politicians and pundits even suggest that we think about creating a 9/11 type of commission for domestic extremism. That would obviously be modeled on the 9/11 Commission established in 2002. Perhaps,…

obergefell_vs_swearingen

Penna Dexter Jim Obergefell lost his race for the Ohio House of Representatives by 23 points. He was the plaintiff in the landmark 2015 Obergefell v. Hodges case in which the US Supreme Court redefined marriage to include same-sex couples. Mr. Obergefell raised twice as much money as his opponent, pro-life and socially conservative incumbent, D. J. Swearingen. Most of Mr. Obergefell’s support came from outside his district. He was endorsed by the Human Rights Campaign, Pro-choice America, and a…

Drag Queen story hour in library

Kerby Anderson Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan may be best known for a seminal essay he wrote three decades ago. The Democratic Senator from New York said that the country back then was Defining Deviancy Down. His concern was that deviant behavior had become so pervasive even in the 1980s and 1990s that commentators were beginning to redefine it to cope with it. He began by acknowledging that there was “always a certain amount of deviancy in society. But when you…

Ted Cruz - Justice Corrupted- How the Left Weaponized Our Legal System

Kerby Anderson Should there be an investigation of the Justice Department? Senator Ted Cruz makes the case for an investigation in his book, Justice Corrupted: How the Left Weaponized Our Legal System. Lawyer Harmeet Dhillon also makes the case in her recent Hillsdale speech on “The Politicization of the Department of Justice.” Senator Cruz argues that the left has corrupted the US legal system. Liberal judges and prosecutors wield the law as a weapon. Be afraid if you stand in…

GOOGLE sign at night

Kerby Anderson Two years ago, I wrote of Dr. Robert Epstein and his research that showed how Google affected the outcome of the 2016 and 2020 elections in favor of Democrats. He has served in various editorial positions at Psychology Today and Scientific American MIND. Although he is a Democratic voter, he is honest enough with his research to show that the tech giant “has its digital thumb on the scale.” He warned that the power big tech has “never…

kids lab experiment explosion

Kerby Anderson Victor Davis Hanson argues that “once the Left took the presidency, the House, and the Senate, they tried a deadly experiment on the American people.” The election last week changed the future direction of Congress, but the president and his cabinet are still responsible for foreign policy, military policy, and national security. He reminds us that the president and his military advisers are “quiet about the depletion of its critical stocks of weaponry.” The government has sent billions…

Inflation - consumer costs

Kerby Anderson The US inflation rate is the highest it has been in four decades. Unfortunately, inflation is often a hidden tax that is difficult for the average consumer to perceive. They know prices are going up, but they don’t have an accurate measure of how it is affecting them and their families. Seamus Brennan found a way to put the last decade into some perspective by using the concept of a pay raise and a pay cut. Under President…
